    12 ton grain trailer

    What make of trailer is that? I got a Proforge 12 tonne with sprung drawbar, hydraulic rear door, roll over sheet and commercial axles for £16,300 3 months ago. The salesman told me to buy it because the price was going up which it has done by £4000. I haven't used it much but it seems pretty...

    If they manage to navigate their way through the minefield with some pretty big ships will they not be showing the Russian navy the way through? I know Putin has made a pinky promise not to attack but he might be tempted.

    Agents fees

    Yes the 30% part seems really high. I cannot find any evidence of other promotion companies asking for that. I have seen between 10-20% depending on how much risk the project represents. I was just wondering if anyone else has found similar in what is a new market. I have been polite to the...

    Agents fees

    I think this promotion company act in a similar way to a residential land promotion company. They go through all the planning stage paying for all the surveys etc and get the site "shovel ready" for battery storage to be placed on the land. They then put the site up for tender and sell it on to...

    I have written an email to him to try and get an explanation but he hasn't replied. Just a bit surprised that this group of Land Agents are a very well known firm and I expected a little better from them. I've dealt a fair bit with the smaller agents and found honest ones to be few a far...

    Agents fees

    The promotion company should be paying my agents fees. It's just that they will be getting 10 times that amount back from the promotion company in other fees which makes we wonder who's interests they will be looking after best.

    Agents fees

I found him rather pushy and following discussions with a land agent experienced with this type of thing he recommended getting a promotion company involved. This company...

    I would imagine the recent sell off in Chicago is a reaction to the usual nonsense of the USDA report and an extra long weekend due to the 4th July holiday. Interesting to see how the European markets are going to be on Monday without being able to follow the Americans.

    I have a big kerosene tank and the last time I filled it up it was 33.58. The tank is pretty low now so I had to buy at 86.3. Didn't sit well but at the end of the day I need it.
